What's your standard McDonald's order?

'1 soft serve'

1y ago

Colemans are a predictable people, which is why on family road trips nobody, not even a new in-law, ever says “ooh look at that lovely bakery, let’s stop there for lunch”. It’s always a McDonald's. Nobody questions. It’s a thing.

Which to my young child’s mind, was a great idea because no lovely bakery would ever do a better job at lunch than McDonald's. Now that I’m older and obviously know better, I still think that. A pie handmade to a family recipe since 1971 is going to taste amazing. But not better than 10 McNuggets with aioli sauce.

And as a result of this loyalty, I can trace my standard Maccas orders through the years:

CIRCA AGE 2: Happy Meal with 6 nuggets, not cheeseburger. Would go up to the counter like a little Karen to ask for another toy if I got the junkiest, which I always did

CIRCA AGE 10: Quarter Pounder Meal

CIRCA AGE 13: Big Mac Meal

THIS WEEK: Big Mac Meal, 10 McNuggets and 1 hash brown

  • Lately I've been getting the Signature Collection burger that has caramelized onion and goat cheese and is delicious. But if I get anything else I always order 1 extra big fries.

    • That sounds excellent, I'll be honest. I'm going to look for it.

    • I think signature collections change depending on the country because the ones here were made by spanish chefs if I'm correct. 🤔 But yeah maybe yours has some delicacies from your country.

    • Now if your fridge is properly stocked, there should also be extra pickles at home.
